The Reverence Library: An Encyclopedia of Lies

One new idea for every day in 2011. We're talking big, small, local, international, in action and on the drawing board. Here's today's -- what's yours?

Don't cite anything within The Reverence Library; the series of pocket-sized enclopedias is full of (beautifully written and illustrated) lies.

Scottish founders Jez Burrows and Lizzy Stewart set out to create the books with a team of creatives who cover topics "inspired by fact and reworked by fiction."

"You might learn somethings, but likely not," Stewart writes. "Mostly you'll read some great writing and enjoy some fun illustrations" 

A quick peek inside reveals Joshua Allen's story about a cursed ship in the Galleons section, and tales about engineer Nikola Tesla made up, illustrated, and written by Meg Hunt.

Volume One of the book/reference library is available here.
